A VALUABLE POULTRY BOOK 

Greider's Complete Catalog for 1909 is the Finest 
Ever Issued by Him. 

A book that will be read with a 
great deal of interest, on account of 
the rapid growth of the poultry in- 
dustry and the profits to be realized 
in this field, is Greider's 1909 Cata- 
log of Poultry and Supplies, pre- 
pared by B. H. Greider, the well- 
known poultryman of Rheems, Pa. 

This book illustrates and describes 
all the leading breeds of fowl, their 
value and ability as money-makers, 
besides giving the lowest prices for 
stock and eggs for hatching, etc. 

A chapter tells how to build the 
right kind of practical houses, show- 
ing plans and pictures, and suggests 
the necessary equipment for profit- 
able use. 

Feeding methods are explained, as 
well as the way to care for a flock 
so that they will keep in healthy 
condition and lay — especially in the 
cold weather, when eggs bring high 
prices. 

Among the features included is a 
set of chromos — pictures of fowls in 
colors — that appeals to all lovers of 
poultry. 

At the price asked — ten cents post- 
paid — this book is well worth send- 
ing for and should be in the hands 
of everyone interested in poultry 
raising on either a large or small 
scale. Enclose the price to B. H. 
Greider, at Rheems, Pa., and we be- 
lieve you will be perfectly satisfied 
with the bargain.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



Bro. Robert H. Miller, who was born 
in Shelby County, Kentucky, June 7, 
1825, was a very remarkable man, con- 
sidering his educational opportunities. 
His parents were in moderate circum- 
stances, and when their son Robert was 
eleven years old they moved to Mont- 
gomery County, Indiana. Robert be- 
came a very diligent and apt student and 
in due time secured sufficient education 
to teach school. While teaching, he 
studied law and became quite skilled at 
the bar. He also grew into prominence 
as a political speaker, and during politi- 
cal campaigns was in considerable de- 
mand. 



ELDER R. H. MILLER. 

Shortly after uniting 




R. H. Miller. 

At the age of twenty-five he married 
Sister Sarah Harshbarger, a very intelli- 
gent and devout woman, who was the 
means of leading him to the church. 
His conversion was thorough. He im- 
mediately closed his law practice and 
ceased delivering political addresses. 



with the church, 
he was called to the ministry, and in- 
side of a few years reached the elder- 
ship. He preached well from the start, 
and soon became one of the most noted 
preachers in his part of the State. 

He entered upon the study of the 
Scriptures with rare zeal and intelli- 
gence, making the doctrine of the church 
a specialty. His strong doctrinal ser- 
mons brought him into prominence and 
led to his engaging in a number of de- 
bates, probably a dozen in all. He was 
at his best in a public discussion and 
probably never met his equal as a cool, 
careful and logical disputant. When in 
his prime he was doubtless the ablest 
■ defender of the doctrine of the Church 
of the Brethren ever known among us. 
He knew how to present an argument 
and make it stand for all there was in it. 

As a debater he had some unique ex- 
periences. About 1873 the Brethren 
secured his services for a discussion in 
a town some distance from the railroad. 
His reputation as an able preacher and 
a fine debater had gone before him, so 
on the day for his arrival at the railroac, 
station, where one of the brethren was 
to.meet him and convey him to the place 
of discussion, a number of boys from 
the town made it a point to be at the 
depot in time to get a first glimpse of 
the famous preacher. Bro. Miller was 
naturally a fine-looking man. When he 
alighted from the train, and was greeted 
by the brother, who came to meet him, 
the boys scrutinized him with intense in- 
terest. In all their experiences they had 
never seen such a fine and intelligent 
looking man. 

A large trunk was unloaded from the 
train and taken possession of by Bro. 
Miller and the brother who had met him. 
This trunk put the boys to surmising, 
and they soon decided that it was full 
of books. So, without waiting for fur- 
ther developments, they mounted their 
horses, and returned to their town in all

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



possible haste, and told everybody they 
met that they had seen the great de- 
bater, that he was a fine-looking man, 
that he had a big trunk full of books, 
and was reading Greek, Hebrew and 
Latin all the time. Before Bro, Miller 
reached the town, everybody knew of 
his coming, the boys had spread the 
news everywhere, and the excitement 
was simply intense. 

The stir made by the boys so affected 
public sentiment and the man Bro. Mil- 
ler was to have met in debate, that the 
discussion actually fell through with and 
never came off. His opponent could not 
be induced to accept clearly-defined 
propositions, and so there was no de- 
bate. Bro. Miller used to tell, in an 
amusing way, how the boys in Southern 
Illinois spoiled a debate for him. 

During his busy life in the ministry, 
,Bro. Miller figured as a farmer, college 
president, author and corresponding edi- 
tor. Few men among us have served on 
more Annual Meeting committees, and 
while he did not like this kind of work, 
he possessed a rare fitness for it. He 
produced and published the best defense 
of the doctrine of the church ever placed 
before the public. This book. The Doc- 
trine of the Brethren Defended, has been 



widely circulated, and will long remain 
a standard work. 

He lived at a period in the history of 
the church when his labors were very 
much needed and greatly appreciated, 
but the church did not give him the tem- 
poral aid that he should have had. 
Physically speaking, he was not a strong 
man, and much hard work devoted to 
making a living weakened his body and 
probaibly paved the way for his death. 
It is unfortunate that much of his 
strength had to be given to manual la- 
bor. All of his time should have been 
devoted to preaching and writing. He 
should have left several books, and did 
have some in contemplation, but never 
had time to write them. 

In 1879 his wife passed into the heav- 
enly Canaan and about two years later 
he married Sister Emma Norris, of 
Maryland, who, on March 8, 1892, sat 
by his bedside, in the residence of Bro. 
J. G. Royer, Mt. Morris, 111., and saw 
her devout husband breathe his last and 
pass into the other world. He had come 
to Mt. Morris to deliver a series of dis- 
courses, which were to have been pub- 
lished, but soon took sick and never re- 
covered. His remains were laid to rest 
in the Brethren cemetery near North 
Manchester, Ind. 



MONKEY PLAYS JOKE. 



A funny story is told of an English- 
man who was in India and who owned 
a monkey that was as mischievous as 
most monkeys are. Looking out of his 
window one day the gentleman saw his 
cook plucking a fowl preparatory to 
cooking it for dinner. On the ground 
at a little distance lay the monkey pre- 
tending that he was dead, while a flock 
of crows were hopping about a little 
way distant, divided between the desire 
for the kitchen offal and the fear of the 
possibly shamming monkey. One crow, 
more adventurous than the rest, came 
within the magic distance and was in- 
stantly in the clutch of the monkey. At 



the same moment the cook, having fin- 
ished trussing the fowl, put it into the 
pot and went away. 

The monkey plucked the crow as he 
had just seen the cook pluck the fowl, 
took the fowl out of the pot, put the 
crow in and retired with his exchange. 
When the cook came back and saw the 
fowl left for his master's luncheon 
turned black, he was struck with terror, 
believing that the evil one had inter- 
fered to bring about such a startling re- 
sult. Meanwhile the monkey was en- 
joying the fowl he had stolen. — Detroit

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



"THE ROSE OF JERICHO." 



BY DEMETRIUS CHIRIGHOTIS. 



I have heard about the Rose of 
Jericho, but never saw it except when 
traveling in the Holy Land. This mar- 
velous plant grows and blooms in the 
great deserts of Palestine and Arabia. 

Growing in the sultry sand, under the 
scorching sun, this ill-fitted plant leads 
a life quite unlike the plants in any other 
country; it never knows the shade of a 
large tree, or the refreshing dew of the 
morning. Its leaves are neither green 
nor flexible, but of an ashy, somber 
color and hard. The flowers are of a 
whitish brown. 

It is a plant that naturally absorbs a 
great deal of water, but in the desert 
there is not much water, and when the 
last drop is taken up by the plant, then 
it gets dry and twists into a ball, but 
dees not die. No, it does not die, for 
it is a courageous, living plant. It re- 
mains in this condition until, perchance, 
it enjoys more favorable surroundings. 

The wind of the desert, blowing merci- 
lessly, sharp and dry, reduces the plant 
to a poor state. Though the wind is 
unsparing for a while, yet this same wind 
eventually comes to its relief. It blows, 
and the rose that is fixed to the ground 
by a few weak roots, is torn up, rolled 
into a ball and carried far away. 

Very often the place into which this 
rose is installed is also dry and sterile, 
like the former, though sometimes it 
meets with a little moisture and at once 



spreads its twigs, pushes open its little 
white flowers and dresses itself with the 
faint beauties with which nature has en- 
dowed it. No matter how dry the flower 
may be and evidently weathered out, 
yet it retains its own properties. Carry 
it where you will, keep it for any length 
of time you like, then dip it into water 
and very soon you will notice the twigs 
become flexible and the flowers appar- 
ently open. 

Naturalists call this plant Anastatica 
(rising) flower, for it has the properties 
to survive and bloom as soon as it gets 
wet, though in its dried form it shows 
all signs of death. In retaining these 
life-giving properties, it is rightly con- 
sidered as the symbol of eternity and 
the immortality of the soul. 

The Arabs call it " Caf-Mariam," 
Mary's flower, and it is said to grow 
where Mary stood, when about to flee 
to Egypt with Jesus. Another tradition 
states that it first bloomed on the birth 
of Christ. 

I believe it is good to think of the 
Rose of Jericho, because it is an example 
of courage and noble-mindedness. If we 
ever become sad or helpless, let us turn 
our minds to this brave, little plant, 
which the wind may uproot and tear 
from the ground, but can never really 
destroy!

How do bees dispose of their honey? 
They cell it. 

What game do the waves play ^T? 
Pitch and toss. 

What is the oldest lunatic on record? 
Time out of mind. 

What is a muff? Something that holds 
a lady's hand and doesn't squeeze it. 

When is a clock on the stair danger- 



ous? When it runs down and strikes 
one. 

Why is a pig in the kitchen like a 
house on fire? The sooner it's out the 
better. 

Why are troublesome visitors like 
trees in winter? Because it is a long 
time before they leave.

Prof. John W. Wayland says: 

"The 'Bicentennial Addresses" ('Two Centuries of the Church of the Brethren'), 
surpasses my expectations both as to size and contents, as well as in elegance of work- 
manship. It is one of the most interesting- volumes our church has published, and 
should be received as such by our own people and others.'

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



SARAH 

Sister Sarah Righter Major, a sainted 
mother in Israel, at one time figured 
somewhat prominently in parts of the 
Brotherhood. She was born near Phil- 
adelphia, Aug. 29, 1808, and lived seventy- 
six years. She was a daughter of Bro. 
John Righter, a minister in the Brethren 
church, and grew to womanhood with 
good church environments. She had a 




Sarah Major. 

good common school education, but no 
special attempt was made to favor her 
with a college course. 

At the age of eighteen, while listening 
to a discourse preached by Harriet 
Livermore, a lady preacher of wide repu- 
tation in her day, and who occasionally 
held services in a few houses owned by 
the Brethren, she became sensibly con- 
victed and at once applied for member- 
ship in the church at Philadelphia. Soon 
after her baptism she felt that it was her 
duty to preach the Gospel, and had con- 
siderable distress of mind regarding this 



MAJOR. 

feeling until she was questioned by her 
father concerning the cause of her de- 
pression in spirit. She told him that she 
was impressed with the thought that the 
Lord had called her to preach. 

Her father was a prudent man, and 
told Bro. Peter Keyser, the principal 
minister in Philadelphia, about the talk 
he had with his daughter. Bro. Keyser 
was also a prudent as well as a very de- 
vout man, and greatly sympathized with 
the young sister. He had a talk with her 
about her call and urged her to enter 
upon the work of the ministry, in the 
way she was impressed. This she did, 
much to the comfort and edification of 
hundreds, who listened to her simple and 
earnest addresses. 

There were those in the church who 
did not believe in sisters preaching, and 
this opposition the gifted young sister 
had to endure. Other congregations, 
hearing of her success as a preacher, in- 
vited her to come and hold meetings. 
To most of these calls she responded, 
and there was quite a demand for her 
services. There was something about 
her fine blending of intelligence, humil- 
ity, simplicity and spirituality that drew 
people to her, and even those who were 
opposed to women preaching were gen- 
erally favorably impressed by her touch- 
ing discourses. While she was not very 
systematic about arranging the matter 
for her sermons, still she had a way of 
unfolding the Scriptures that attracted 
general attention. She was always im- 
pressive and interesting, and there were 
times when she grew eloquent. 

After she had preached nearly sixteen 
years, and when she was thirty-four 
years old, she was married to Bro. 
Thomas Major, who was- a minister in 
the Brethren church. Sister Major was 
never installed as a minister, but was 
simply permitted to preach. After her 
marriage she always traveled with her 
husband but went into the pulpit only 
when invited to do so. He would often

read a scripture, make a few remarks, 
and then kindly ask his wife to speak. 

She always wore the ample prayer 
covering seen in the accompanying 
photograph. Sometimes she did not re- 
move her bonnet until she had spoken a 
few minutes. She had a very graceful 
way of untying the strings, removing her 
bonnet and handing it to her husband. 
In fact her every act before the public 
was graceful. Her gestures were natural 
and becoming her sex as well as her pro- 
fession. 

The next year after their marriage the 
Majors, as they were called, sold their 
property in Philadelphia, and moved to 
Ohio, finally settling in Highland 
County, in the bounds of the Fall Creek 
church. Under their well-directed labors 
many were converted and the church 
grew rapidly. Here they lived and la- 
bored until 1884 when the spirit of the 
gifted woman took its flight. Bro. Major 
closed his earthly pilgrimage four years 
later. They raised three children, and 
in addition to doing much in the way of 
preaching the Gospel, they gave all 
needed attention to their temporal af- 
fairs and prospered in life. 

Sister Major's influence as a Christian 
teacher was not confined to the pulpit. 
She visited jails, infirmary institutions 



and other places, carrying to the people 
the Bread of Life. She was especially 
diligent in her religious work in families. 
Into whatever family she went with her 
message, she was welcomed and always 
made a lasting impression on those she 
visited. 

But she lived at a time when she had 
to face much opposition upon the part 
of those who were opposed to women 
preaching. There were times when this 
outspoken o'pposition pained her noble 
heart. Still she bore it all, and gave as 
little occasion for offense as possible. 
While she felt that her call was from 
the Lord she did not purposely impose 
her message on those who did not care 
to receive the Bread of Life from a 
woman. Had she come on to the stage 
of action seventy years later, she would 
have been more generally received. Were 
she living now, practically every pulpit 
in the Brotherhood would be at her serv- 
ice, and it would be impossible for her 
to fill half of the calls she would re- 
ceive. But she served her day and gen- 
eration well, and we rejoice that we are 
permitted to pen this short sketch of 
her life, and labors, and to present to 
our readers the first photograph of her 
ever given to the public through the 
medium of the press. 



INSIDE INFORMATION. 

A Christian Scientist found his young 
son doubled up with pain as a result of 
too frequent trips to the apple orchard, 
where many choice green apples were to 
be had. 

"What's the matter, Bobbie?" he 
asked. 

" I ate too many apples," said Bob- 
bie; "and, oh, how rjay stomach hurts!" 

" Your stomach doesn't ache," said his 
father; "you just think it does." 

"Well, you may think so," said Bob- 
bie, " but I know. I've got inside in- 
formation." — Harper's Magazine. 



THE ELEPHANT CAN COUNT. 

Many animals know how to count, and 
the elephant is specially clever at arith- 
metic. It is told of one of these giant 
creatures, that was in the habit of hav- 
ing twenty pieces of cake given to him 
daily for his dinner, that he found it 
out at once when only nineteen were 
placed before him. He was so much 
offended about this that he refused to 
touch a morsel till a twentieth piece of 
cake was added to the rest.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 




J. H. Umstad. 



ELDER JOHN 

Bro. John Umstad, who was born in 
Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. 1, 1802, was an 
original character, peculiar in his ways 
at times, but an earnest and devout 
Christian man. He had only a fair edu- 
cation, but nature had endowed him with 
a fine brain, a 
very cheerful dis- 
position and he 
early attracted at- 
tention as a 
strong and orig- 
inal thinker o f 
pleasing and at- 
tractive manners. 
He was nearly 
thirty years old 
when he made a 
religious profes- 
sion. A revival 
was held in his 
neighborhood in 1831, when he, Isaac 
Price, and a number of others, were con- 
verted and added to the church. He had 
a good influence among the people and 
when he came out from the world and 
accepted Jesus as his Savior, it made 
quite a stir in the community. Three 
years later he was called to the ministry 
and commenced preaching the Gospel. 
The Greentree church was built near 
his home, and here he did his best work 
as a minister. 

In preaching the Gospel in the Green- 
tree church, he was associated with Bro. 
Isaac Price, both of them having been 
set apart to the work at the same time. 
Bro. Umstad developed into a speaker 
of excellent ability, noted more, however, 
for his earnestness, cheerfulness and 
winning ways than for his depth of 
thought and logic. He believed God to 
be a loving Father, and he presented him 
as such to his hearers. His appeals to 
the sinner were almost irresistible. He 
told them what the Gospel demanded of 
them, pointed out the danger of reject- 
ing the easy terms of pardon, then pre- 
sented his earnest appeals in such a 



H. UMSTAD. 

pleasing manner as to almost captivate 
those who listened to his discourses. 

In his day he was a strong man among 
the Brethren, loved and respected wher- 
ever known. In appearance he was one 
of the noblest of men, and though of a 
commanding bearing, yet he was as meek 
and as simple as a child. To everybody he 
was a friend, both at home and abroad. 
Though of a lively disposition, wherever 
he went among strangers he was singled 
out as a preacher. His preaching did 
not cover a broad field. He preferred 
to limit his lines of thought and do good 
work. This led to his having a number 
of favorite texts and themes that he used 
quite frequently. 

Before he joined the church he wore 
very fashionable clothes, but when he 
was converted all this disappeared. It 
took no arguments or persuasions to in- 
duce him to give up his worldly ways. 
With him plain attire for Christians was 
a principle that became a part of his 
very make-up, and he found it easy to 
fall into the ways of the church. He 
remained faithful until death and 
preached his last sermon only a short 
time before he died, at the age of 
seventy-one. His funeral was attended 
by a large concourse of people, fourteen 
ministers of the Church of the Brethren 
preceding the corpse to the place of in- 
terment, while many ministers of other 
denominations followed in the proces- 
sion. Thus went to rest one of God's 
chosen ministers, — a man who stood firm 
for his convictions, and yet his manner 
of life was so agreeable, so cheerful and 
so honest, pure and sincere, tliat he died 
without an enemy. Those who knew 
him love to think of him as a man of 
God. He did not wait for a revival to 
talk to sinners about their soul's salva- 
tion. On meeting strangers he often 
asked them if they loved Jesus. Many 
of his apt remarks have come down to 
the present generation, and in the com- 
munity where he lived he will be quoted

for generations to come. He so im- 
pressed others with his originality, pe- 
culiarity, aptness, agreeableness and love 
for his Master that he will not soon be 
forgotten. 

Bro. Geo. D. Zollers, who knew Bro. 
Umstad personally, and often heard him 
preach has this to say of the devout and 
venerable preacher: 

Eld. Umstad possessed rare natural 
abilities, and was also a man of consid- 
erable mental culture. He was a devout 
servant of the Lord, clad with the Chris- 
tian graces, and simplicity was a promi- 
nent trait of his life. He seemed to have 
a kind word for everybody, and he could 
readily adapt himself to the varied hu- 
man temperaments, and was an apt con- 
versationalist. His preaching was ex- 
temporaneous, and at times he grew very 
eloquent and soared in oratorical flight. 

He had a good command of language 
and could afford attraction to his audi- 
ence. He was full of the Spirit of God, 
and was moved by the inspiration of the 
occasion. He carried the influence of his 
public efforts into private life, and great- 
ly cheered the homes where his visits 
were paid. 

The first time I met Bro. Umstad in 
a personal interview, was soon after my 
return from the seafaring life; it was 
after my admission into the Church of 
the Brethren, when my heart glowed 
with love. This occurred five miles from 
the residence of Bro. Umstad. The news 
of my reception was circulated over my 
home country, and Bro. Umstad, with 
others, was familiar with the event. I 
was subsequently working at my trade, 
near the Greentree church, Pa., and went 
to spend a night in Bro. Umstad's home. 

That night, however, two of his rela- 
tives came from McVeytown, and util- 
ized a good portion of his time in the 
evening. But he desired a special inter- 
view with me, and as I was fatigued from 
mechanical toil, that day, he proposed 
that I should retire, and he would call 
me betimes in the morning, then he 
would talk and ask me questions, about 



marine life. This was accomplished the 
following morning, after the season of 
devotion, while I ate my breakfast, and 
he took his seat beside me and plied 
his questions. As I had to effect my de- 
parture early to resume my work, we 
bade each other farewell, he pronounc- 
ing his warm benedictions upon me. 

At another time I visited at his home, 
after I had lived in Illinois a number of 
years, in company with other brethren 
who lived in my own native, historic 
homeland. All were familiar with Bro. 
John Umstad. Our social time was 
most precious, and our religious conver- 
sation edifying. We had a season of 
prayer together before parting, and Bro. 
Umstad made the closing prayer with 
the simplicity of a child. When he had 
prayed for all present, had asked God's 
blessings upon his guests, he said: " Lord 
bless Bro. Umstad, too." I can hear the 
ringing of the simple and fervent words 
yet. 

The next, and last time, perhaps, that 
I met him, was in the Hickory Grove 
church, Carroll County, 111., where I 
lived at the time. I was then a minister. 
He stopped first at Eld. Michael Sisler's, 
just across the way from my home, I 
passed through the gate to enter the 
road, en route to a church meeting, as 
the church was only twenty-five rods 
from my residence. I saw Bro. Umstad 
hastening towards me, and he surprised 
me by his sudden and unexpected ap- 
proach. He greeted me with his counte- 
nance gleaming with the sunshine of 
heavenly love, and poured out the effu- 
sions of his heart in these memorable 
words: "Hold fast that which' thou hast, 
let no man take thy crown." 

He attended our love feast during this 
visit, was the main preacher, and offi- 
ciated. At the preaching service the 
Hickory Grove house was filled to its 
full capacity, and Bro. Umstad was urged 
to take his position near the center of 
the house. He walked forward as di- 
rected, rubbing his hands and quoting 
his text from memory, " Therefore, my

"THE INFLUENCE OF IVHSSIONS ON THE CHURCH OF THE BSETHSEN." 

During- the Des Moines Conference, thousands of brethren and sisters listened with 
intense interest to t'-.e mast-rful address of Bro. W. M. Howe on the above topic. If you 
"did not hear the address, turn to page 291 of "Two Centuries of the Church of the 
Brethren," and read .ne opening- paragraph. Of course you'll read the other eleven 
pages and tlien you will want to read the other twenty-three addresses. Prices and

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, un- 
movable, always abounding in the work 
of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that 
your labor in the Lord is not in vain." 
1 Cor. 15: 58. 

Eld. David Rittenhouse, who was a 
native of Pennsylvania, and had been 
a colaborer with Bro. Umstad, in the 
Greentree church, before he settled in 
Illinois, followed Bro. Umstad to the 
central part of the house. It was an 
impressive scene to see these veterans of 
the Cross, in such close fraternal unity. 
Eld. Umstad preached a soul-inspiring 
sermon, and held his audience spell- 
bound. He alluded to the resurrection 
power, as the confirmation of the Chris- 
tian's hope. He portrayed the binding 
force of our relationship with Christ, and 
the controlling power of God over the 
forces of nature, whose voice was more 



potent than the roaring elements, and 
whose voice would raise the dead. 

I might relate ipuch more concerning 
him, but let this one incident suffice. On 
a time he reared a building and procured 
his mechanics. They all knew his de- 
votional turn and expected family wor- 
ship, but he, thinking the pressure of 
business too great, refrained. The me- 
chanics were surprised, and Bro. Um- 
stad felt condemned, and was greatly 
mortified for this lost opportunity to 
benefit his neighbors and honor his God. 
The next morning the laborers did not 
expect it, owing to his proceedings the 
previous day. Bro. Umstad was humili- 
ated and confessed his neglect to the 
workmen. And then, with childlike sim- 
plicity resumed his regular order of de- 
votion and praise. This shows the in- 
tegrity of the man. 



THE NEEDLE. 

All the children were asked to bring 
to the grammar class a short original 
composition about some article they saw 
in daily use, and this is what one little 
boy wrote: 

"The needle is a sewing tool. It is 
composed of two parts — the point and 
the eye. The eye is made of air, and 
is what you stick the thread through. 
The point is made of steel, and is what 
you stick through the cloth." 

DINED IN THE KITCHEN. 

" When General Grant stopped at the 
P'almer House in Chicago on his return 
from his tour of the world," said a 
a man who was there at the time, " the 
steward was all but stupefied one noon 
at seeing the ex-president slide in at 
the kitchen door as though escaping 
from some one. 

" * I am sorry to trouble you, sir,' 
he said, as though asking a great favor, 
* but may I have a little corned beef 
and cabbage? 

"'Why, certainly,' the steward replied; 



' but shan't I send it out to you in the 
dining room? ' 

"'No,' he answered; 'I'll eat it right 
here if you'll let me sit down.' 

" So a place on the rough board table, 
where the cook had been fixing the 
meat, was cleared, and Grant drew up 
a stool and set to, and the way he got 
away with that corned beef and cab- 
bage was a caution. When he had fin- 
ished, he laid down his knife and fork 
with a funny sigh of satisfaction, put 
one hand on the steward's shoulder and 
said: 

" ' Young man, I don't suppose you care 
for that at all, but if you had had to 
eat what I have for the past few months 
it would taste like a dinner for the gods. 
It tastes homey! ' 

" The ex-president had dined with 
everybody from the queen down, but 
that cabbage and corned beef doubtless 
reminded him of the time when he was 
not so well known, but probably far hap- 
pier — when people in St. LquIs called 
him ' captain ' when they spoke to him 
and bought the wood he carted into 
town to sell."

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC 



JOHN H. FILMORE. 

BY J. D. HAUGHTELIN. 




John H. Filmore. 



The subject of this sketch was born 
at Rochester, N. Y., Aug. 16, 1820, and 
died in Van Buren County, Iowa, Dec. 
9, 1889. Between these two dates the 
scenes and labors of a varied, busy and 
useful life were enacted. Of his ancestors 
I have nothing, 
except that his 
father, in an ex- 
citing chase after 
a deer, overheated 
himself and died 
suddenly. 

As a boy John 
was lively, mis- 
chievous, up early 
and at it all day 
long, with a host 
of admiring 
friends around 
him to whom he 
was true, though sometimes they were 
the victims of his wits and pranks. His 
education was limited, but his keen con- 
ception and wide-awake, observing na- 
ture enabled him to increase and reduce 
to practice his store of information. 

He was a man of strong individuality; 
bold to declare and defend his convic- 
tions. This caused him to be talked 
about much by those best acquainted 
with him. Though I never lived nearer 
than sixty miles of him, I often heard 
of him before I first met him in Septem- 
ber, 1864 (war times). He took much 
delight in wood-chopping, and did a 
great deal of it. It was natural for him 
to obey the injunction, " Whatsoever 
thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy 
might." Even in his old days he took 
great pleasure in having a neat, orderly 
woodpile near his kitchen door, and he 
delighted in doing his best, whether 
chopping wood or preaching the Gospel. 
In 1849 he was married to Mrs. Sarah 
Hyatt. (The first time she saw him he 
was discoursing on the temperance 



problem.) To them were born three 
sons, — Wm. H., David T. and Jacob C, 
and one daughter, Rachel A., now the 
wife of Bro. J. T. Couser, of Britton, 
S. Dak. Her mother lives with them. 

In 1850, near Washington, D. C, Bro. 
Filmore sought religion by the shouting 
Methodist mourner bench route, so pop- 
ular in the East in those days. His 
energetic, investigating mind soon caused, 
him to long for something more sub- 
stantial than the emotional and sensa- 
tional. By reading the Scriptures he 
learned that " the Gospel of Christ is 
the power of God unto salvation." 
Coming in contact with the Brethren, in 
Maryland, he, in 1854, accepted the 
fuller light, and soon became a very 
earnest advocate of their teaching. In 
1856 he was chosen to the ministry, in 
Somerset County, Pennsylvania. The 
next year he moved to Waterloo, Iowa. 
His zeal and impulsiveness soon brought 
him to prominent notice. This in- 
creased his self-reliance, which, in time, 
brought him into trouble which caused 
him to exercise his wits in making his 
defense. " Forgetting the things which 
are behind and reaching forth unto those 
things which are before," caused him to 
become a ready talker and quite success- 
ful, especially in new territory. 

This peculiarity in his make-up caused 
him to move often. As nearly as I can 
learn, he moved from Waterloo to Linn, 
Butler, Benton and Jefferson Counties, 
successively, in Iowa, then to Grundy 
and Davis Counties, in Missouri, thence 
to Lee County, Illinois; from there to 
Adams, Harrison and Shelby Counties, 
in Iowa, and from there back to Jeffer- 
son County in hi^ declining days. 

Being quite sensitive he was very easily 
elated or depressed by environments. 
One incident will illustrate: He held a 
series of meetings in a new place, with 
marked success. This elated him. Be-

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



fore starting home a number of generous 
sisters laid together and procured a 
dress pattern for his wife, and some 
valuable presents for the children. These 
were given into the hands of a good, 
reliable deacon to give to him. He, 
seeing how elated Bro. Filmore was, 
presented the gifts with the following 
little speech: "Bro. John, here are some 
presents the sisters are sending your 
family, but we don't want you to think 
it is pay for your preaching. We have 
brethren here who can preach just as 
well as you." It struck a tender spot. 
He said to the brethren who took him 
to the train, " Did you ever know a man 
to get such a downsetting to start home 
with?" 

At a certain place in Iowa his aggres- 
siveness caused a minister of another 
denomination to challenge him for a 
discussion. Some of the brethren op- 
posed his accepting it, and some en- 
couraged him. He either underesti- 
mated the ability of his opponent, or 
overestimated his own, but he accepted 
and was defeated. The Brethren in gen- 
eral were not willing to leave it go at 
that, but soon arranged to have Bro. 
Quinter discuss with his opponent. 
\vhen Bro. Quinter came and was intro- 
duced to the opponent, N. A. McCon- 
nell, Bro. Filmore said to Mr. Mc- 



Connell, " You will find you will not 
have John Filmore to handle this time." 
Quickly the reply came, " I am aware 
of that, I have a gentleman to meet this 
time." The thrust wounded him, but he 
did not lose his wits, as his reply shows. 
He gravely replied, " I wish Bro. 
Quinter could say as much." 

Upon one occasion I heard him in all 
the fervor of his soul, contending for the 
cause of his Master, and, catching the 
eye of a veteran brother, who was well 
acquainted with his troubles and weak- 
nesses, he exclaimed, "Oh! Brethren, if 
I could only live it as well as I can 
preach it." He was called by the church 
to one of his successful earlier fields of 
labor where he spent his last days 
peacefully in the service of his Master. 

Dec. 9, 1889, being somewhat indis- 
posed, he was sitting in his easy chair, 
singing, " In that sweet by and by," 
when he peacefully closed his eyes in 
death. His mortal remains were laid in 
the narrow limits of the grave at Lib- 
ertyville to await the call of the resur- 
rection morning. 

Thus ended the busy life of one who 
had labored in many different parts of 
the Master's vineyard. May the good 
seed he has sown bring forth a bountiful 
harvest.

DOG PLAYS TRICK. 

Several year ago an elderly lady rent- 
ed a large summer place at Fox Lake, 
111., and with the house, stables, and 
grounds there went a dog, which was 
thrown in for good measure. In the 
library of the house was a large, com- 
fortable Morris chair, the qualities of 
which appealed strongly to the old lady, 
but also unfortunately these same qual- 
ities had impressed the dog, and. when- 
ever the old lady would go tcr" sit in the 
chair she would find the dog curled up 
in it. 

Being afraid of the dog, she did not 



dare to order him out, but would go to 
the window and call " cats." The dog 
would rush to the window and while he 
was barking and looking for his natural 
enemies the lady would slip quietly into 
the chair. 

One day, however, the lady reached 
the chair first, and the dog coming in, 
found her comfortably reading. He im- 
mediately went to the window and be- 
gan barking furiously. 

The old lady went to see what the 
trouble was, and the dog ran back and 
jumped into the chair. — Chicago Trib-

from Germany before the War of the 
Revolution, and located at Hagerstown, 
Md. They were identified with the 
Lutheran church. Eld. Peter Nead was 
born at Hagerstown, Md., Jan. 7, 1796. 
He had three brothers, Matthias, Daniel 
and John. All lived to a good old age. 
Matthias was a Lutheran. He lived 
and died in Greencastle, Pa. Daniel and 
John were members of the Church of 
the Brethren. Both of them labored in 
the ministry, and died in Tennessee. 
Peter's father owned slaves, who did 
his work. This gave Peter an oppor- 
tunity to attend school, where he ac- 
quired what was then considered a fair 
education. 

His grandfather offered to educate 
Peter, and fit him to be a Lutheran 
minister. Peter was not so inclined, and 
did not accept the offer. He spent some 
time clerking in a store. When the fam- 
ily moved to Frederick County, Virginia, 
he served an apprenticeship as a tanner, 
his father being a tanner by trade. 

About this time Peter became im- 
pressed with the thouglit of salvation, 
and united with the M. E. church, and 
remained with that church several years. 
He held the office of class leader and 
was permitted to preach. He was not, 
however, fully reconciled to some of the 
doctrines of that church. He commenced 
to preach as an independent preacher, 
traveling from place to place, and con- 
tinued his preaching about two years. 

About this time there chanced to fall 
into his hands a pamphlet written by 
Eld. Benjamin Bowman, of Rockingham 
County, Virginia. It was by means of 
this little book that he first learned that 
the Brethren as a people held the doc- 
trines and ideas advanced in this pam- 
phlet. He was much pleased and deter- 
mined to find these people, to learn 
something more about them. 



Accordingly he made his way to the 
settlement of the Brethren, and attended 
one of their love feasts. Here, on learn- 
ing further of the doctrine, as held forth 
by the Brethren, and seeing how they 
observed the ordinances, he concluded 
that these were the humble and obedient 
people of the Lord. He therefore made 
application for admission into the 
church, and was received. The Brethren 
gave him liberty to fill all his appoint- 
ments previously made. He was in the 
church but a short time until he was 
elected to the ministry. He was elected 
on the same day that Bro. John Kline 
was elected as a deacon. 

Bro. Nead's manner of dress was more 
stylish than was the custom of the 
Brethren. One feature of his attire, of- 
fensive to the Brethren, was a tall, white 
hat, after the style of the clergy in those 
days. Bro. Nead was so earnest in his 
work, and enjoyed his church relation- 
ship so much that they were slow to 
ask him to put the hat away. Finally 
old Bro. Benjamin Bowman decided 
that he could remove that hat without 
offending Bro. Nead. So, one Sunday, 
after the close of the preaching services, 
at his own house, he asked Bro. Nead 
to take a walk with him. Entering the 
barn, he closed the door, and took him 
to the farther end of the floor, where he 
approached a fanning mill. Reaching 
into the mill, he drew out a new, low- 
crown hat, and said, " Bro. Peter, the 
Brethren feel that the hat you wear is 
not in harmony with the humble pro- 
fession you have made. We love you, 
and desire that you may do a great deal 
of good in the church. Now, Bro. Peter, 
here is a new Brethren's hat that I 
bought for you," Holding the hat close 
to his face, he said, "Will you wear it? " 
Bro. Nead said, " Yes, I will." He took 
the hat and never wore any other kind 
of hat as long as he lived. The kind

officer and pupil will be glad for the historical information contained in Chapter 10 of 
" Two Centuries of the Church of the Brethren." It contains two addresses on " The 
Sunday-school V^ork of the Church." (1) "The Importance of the Sunday-school Work," 
by Eld. I. B. Trout, and (2) "The Growth of the Sunday-school Movement," by Elizabeth 
Myer. This one chapter is well worth the price of the book. The other twenty-two 
addresses are just as valuable. This book is a fitting souvenir of the Bicentennial Year.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



manner in which Bro. Bowman ap- 
proached him, had such an effect upon 
him that he changed all his clothing and 
came in the full order of the church. 

At this time the preaching among the 
Brethren was nearly all in the German 
language, but a strong desire began to 
be manifested for English preaching 
also. As Bro. Nead spoke the English, 
his labors were much sought after. In 
fact, for a long time he was called the 
" English preacher." 

About this time he became acquainted 
with Elizabeth Yount, daughter of Bro. 
Daniel Yount, of Rockingham County, 
Virginia, whom he married Dec. 20, 
1825. Then he settled down and carried 
on the tanning business. He also fre- 
quently taught school during the winter 
season, but, as his ministerial aid was 
needed, and was called for quite gener- 
ally, he could not give the business much 
of his personal attention. 

In 1833 he wrote his " Primitive Chris- 
tianity," which he had printed at Staun- 
ton, Va., and bound in leather. It con- 
tained 138 pages, and was one of the 
first books by the Brethren of those 
days. It treated on the ordinances of 
the Lord's house, and the first principles 
of the Gospel, in a. plain and comprehen- 
sive manner. - It met with a general cir- 
culation, and did much toward the en- 
lightening of the minds and understand- 
ings of many who read the book. In 
many instances was this book the means 
of persons coming into the church. 

In 1840 he, moved from Rockingham 
County, Virginia, to Augusta County, 
where he lived two and a half years. 
From here he moved to Botetourt 
County, where he lived five years. 

In 1845 he wrote a pamphlet of 131 
pages, treating on baptism for the re- 
mission of sins, faith alone, prayerless 
doctrine, the present state of the world, 
corrupted Christendom, and the true 
church of Christ. This he had printed 
at Fincastle, Va. 

In 1848 he moved to Ohio, and finally 
located on a farm nine miles northwest 



of Dayton, where he remained until his 
death. 

In 1850 he compiled his " Theology," 
usually called " Nead's Theology." This 
comprised his first two books, with an 
addition of sixty-seven pages, making a 
volume of 472 pages. This book was 
printed at Dayton. It was stereotyped, 
and though the first edition was large, 
it was soon exhausted. A number of 
smaller editigns have since followed. 
This work has become one of the stand- 
ard works of the church. In 1866 he 
wrote his " Wjisdom and Power of God, 
as Displayed in Creation and Redemp- 
tion," a book of 352 pages. 

Bro. Nead lived twenty-seven years 
in the Lower Stillwater church. The 
greater part of that time was spent in 
the cause of his Master, attending 
preaching services and business meet- 
ings. He was considered an able coun- 
selor, and hence was often called upon 
to assist in council meetings, and on 
church business generally. He was also 
frequently connected with the work of 
district meeting and Annual Meeting. 
He served on the Standing Committee 
at twelve Annual Meetings. Our brother 
was a man of strong convictions, and 
was not afraid to speak his mind on any 
matter that was before the meeting. He 
was one of the firm pillars of the 
Brotherhood, and did what he thought 
was right for the good of the church. 
In fact, his great concern was for the 
church, her purity and prosperity. He 
was also an able preacher. His voice 
was clear and strong, and his discourses 
were interesting and enlightening. He 
had a good, strong mind and memory. 
So far as the Scriptures were concerned, 
he had the greater portion of the Bible 
at his command. In his preaching he 
could quote from any part of the Scrip- 
tures which he desired to bring in as 
testimony, to strengthen his discourse. 
In all his labors in the church he had 
in view the maintaining of the ancient 
principles of the Church of the Brethren, 
and with this in view he was largely in-

strumental in starting the " Vindicator," 
a monthly publication. 

When Bro. Nead first united with the 
Church of the Brethren he was so 
strongly impressed with the beauty of 
the doctrine of the Bible, as understood 
by the Brethren, that it became a part 
of his very nature, and he could not get 
his mind away from those principles, 
which he had so cheerfully accepted. So 
thoroughly convinced was he that the 
doctrine of the Brethren is in harmony 
with the Bible, that he was prompted to 
live a consecrated life, worthy of imita- 
tion by any one. He was held in high 
esteem by all the members of the church. 
He was a good housekeeper and father 
in the church. While he was firm in his 
ruling, he was mild in his expressions, 
and exercised patience in all his church 
work. 

He had strong and fixed habits. For 
his times of studying and reading he 
had his special hours. He would rise 
from his bed at three o'clock, and eat a 
few mouthfuls of dry bread. After 
walking about the room for a few min- 
utes, he would take up his work, — read- 
ing or writing, till six o'clock. He 
claimed he could do more and better 
work, and commit more scripture pas- 
sages to memory during those three 
hours, than in any other part of the 
twenty-four hours. 

His habits of punctuality were very 
strong. When he made a promise to 
meet any one at a certain time he was 
always there. At the church services he 
was never known to be late. When it 
was time for services, he would open 
the meeting, even if only five or six per- 



sons were present. In all of his deal- 
ings with other people he was prompt 
in doing his part. 

His health was quite good. He at- 
tributed that largely to his manner of 
dressing. Wlien the weather was cold, 
he would put on an ample supply of 
clothing. He was greatly blessed with 
good eyesight. He never wore glasses, 
and could read any print to the end of 
his life, without the aid of glasses. He 
always wore a wad of cotton in his ears, 
summer and winter, claiming that this 
and the warm dressing were a prevent- 
ive against head diseases, and that it 
preserved his vision. 

The last sermon he preached in this 
world was in one of the houses of the 
Lower Stillwater church, now called 
" McKinley's." He was then as well as 
usual, and preached a strong sermon. He 
read his text without glasses. When he 
was through with his sermon, he was 
in the act of taking his seat, but rose 
again, and, looking over the congrega- 
tion, he said, " Brethren and friends, it 
may be that this will be the last time 
you will ever hear my stammering voice 
in this house." Then he took his seat, 
and his statement proved true, for in 
three weeks from that day the Brethren 
preached his funeral. 

He died March 16, 1877, aged 81 years, 
2 months and 9 days. On Sunday morn- 
ing, March 18, the people assembled 
at the house where the funeral was 
preached, and whence his body was con- 
veyed to the cemetery, close by, called 
the Happy Corner cemetery, located on 
the farm where he lived and died.

MIRROR MIRACLE. 

The following story of the ingenious 
child mind searching after wisdom, and 
the parental discomfiture resulting comes 
to us from the Chicago Tribune: 

" Papa, you took the scientific course 
in college, didn't you?" 

." Yes, dear, I spent two years on sci- 
ence." 



" When you look in a mirror the left 
side of your face appears to be the right 
side, and the right side seems to be 
the left. The looking-glass reverses it, 
doesn't it?" 

" Yes." 

" Then why doesn't it reverse the top 
and bottom of your face the same way?" 

" Why— er— ah."

REMINISCENCES OF A PIONEER PREACHER. 



BY OMA KARN. 



Surrounded by the ease of modern 
life, with every facility to help us along, 
we cannot realize the hardship and con- 
stant self-sacrificing circumstances that 
attended the lives of our ancestors, es- 
pecially those who stood as witnesses 
for the Truth and carried the Bread of 
Life to hungry souls, leaving to us the 
rich spiritual heritage that we today en- 
joy. 

Prominent among these was Eld. 
Jacob Mack, grandson of the second 
Alexander Mack of history. He was 
born in Pennsylvania about the year 
1802, and ordained to the ministry while 




The Old Log House. 

still quite young. About the time of his 
ordination his parents moved to what 
is now the northeastern district of Ohio, 
the teritory lying between these two lo- 
calities becoming a favorite route to Bro. 
Mack who made many trips to and fro, 
scattering the precious seed as he went, 
each trip enlarging and widening the 
borders of Zion. 

As a speaker, he had more than or- 
dinary ability, with the addition of fine 
musical talent, well trained by use, as 
he rode amidst the solitudes of the for- 
est. One of his favorite hymns was, 
"Joyfully, Joyfully, Onward I Go," 
the strains of which could often be 
heard ringing down the leafy aisles, an- 



nouncing to some lonely backwoods set- 
tler the joyful fact that the preacher was 
coming. 

On these trips Bro. James Quinter 
frequently accompanied him. Meeting- 
houses were few and far between. Serv- 
ices were held in the houses, barns, 
or if the weather would permit, in the 
open air. These two brethren were most 
frequently called upon to settle any diffi- 
culty that arose along the route. 

Here to Ohio, had also come Bro. 
Mack's sister in the flesh. Sister Agnes 
Mack Leckrone, a most gifted and 
saintly woman whose. chief concern was 
the Master's cause. When a child, the 
mother of the writer well remembers 
lying up in the loft of the old log house, 
listening to these three counseling to- 
gether as to what was best for this 
cause. For there were grave questions 
to be settled in those days just as there 
are today. 

Together with the hardship, dangers 
and perplexities accompanying these 
trips, the accommodations along the way 
were not what they are today. On one 
occasion, the two brethren were travel- 
ing together, and did not reach the home 
of the brother where they were to spend 
the night until quite late. The house 
was a primitive cabin of one room and 
a lean-to, and the family an old-fash- 
ioned one, numbering anywhere from 
eight to twelve. The brethren could not 
help looking curiously about wondering 
where sleeping accommodations could 
be made. When bedtime arrived, their 
host put a chair by the bureau and an- 
other on top of it and invited his guests 
to ascend to the loft above^. Bro. 
Quinter went up with the agility of ?, 
schoolboy and then turned and gravely, 
but humorously, cheered on his com- 
panion, who, being a large man, had to 
pant considerably before he reached the 
upper room. Several of the children fol- 



31

lowed, and sleep was sweet in that low, 
bare loft, for souls were hungry in those 
days and the pleasure and peace that fol- 
lowed feeding them was great. 

Bro. Mack lived to a good age, active 
to the last. ■ He had the joy of seeing 



some of the seed he had dropped grow 
up into strong trees, with deep roots 
and wide-spreading branches, as well as 
the coming of many facilities for more 
active service in the vineyard of the 
Master he had so faithfully served.

THE BRETHREN CHURCH IN FRANKLIN COUNTY, VIRGINIA. 

BY DANIEL PETERS. 



The date of the organization of the 
church in this county is not known, but 
it was before the Revolutionary War, 
for my father, who was born in 1782, 
told me he heard the members say there, 
were brethren here prior to the war. He 
also said that Brethren Jacob Miller and 
William Smith were the first two minis- 
ters in this county. 

They usually held their meetings to- 
gether, Bro. Miller preaching in the 
German language and Bro. Smith in the* 
English. The territory where they 
preached was about their homes and 
eastward for twenty odd miles. The 
members at this time were few and far 
apart. A common dwelling house was 
large enough for their congregations, 
even on love feast occasions. It is said 
that these brethren often took their 
staff in hand and walked a distance of 
ten or twelve miles on Saturday evening 
to places of meeting. On Sunday morn- 
ing, at nine o'clock, they were assembled 
to spend a while in reading the Scrip- 
tures, exhorting and asking questions. 
After this the minister would open the 
meeting and call on a deacon brother to 
lead in prayer. 

The manner of living at that time 
was quite simple. They manufactured 
their own clothing. They had no painted 
houses, plows, or wagons. Some of these 
conditions existed in my own time. My 
remembrance of them is very vivid. 

The next to help them in their min- 
isterial labors was Bro. Isaac Naff, a 
minister and elder, who also spoke the 
German language. The church, seeing 
the necessity of English preaching, 



called Bro. John Bowman to the minis- 
try. He became an efficient worker, be- 
ing able to speak in both the German 
and English languages. Bro. Bowman 
was a remarkable man, arousing the in- 
terest of those who saw him. He was 
large and portly, with a very heavy 
beard, energetic and seeming never to 
tire in the work of the church. He trav- 
eled and preached a great deal, going 
into several States, always making these 
long trips on horseback. He was often 
sent for, on long distances, to preach 
funerals, and solemnize marriages. His 
work in this line was greater than that 
of any before or after him. 

At one time a man from North Caro- 
lina, by the name of Jacob Faw, not 
knowing Bro. Bowman's given name or 
address, but wishing to learn something 
from him of the Brethren church, 
wrote a letter, addressed to Preacher 
Bowman, Rocky Mountain, Va., the 
countyseat of Franklin County. After 
receiving a reply from Bro. Bowman, he 
came to his home on Friday evening, 
talked with him on Saturday, making 
known all of his wishes. On Sunday 
morning he accompanied Bro. Bowman 
to his preaching point. After the serv- 
ices he was baptized into Christ, I being 
one of the witnesses of this impressive 
scene. After Bro. Faw's baptism, he 
returned to his home in North Carolina. 

Soon afterward the Brethren of this 
county began preaching down there, go- 
ing two or three times a year, on horse- 
back. In a short time Bro. Faw was 
called to the ministry, and soon to the 
eldership. During his administration, 



32 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



with the assistance of others, the church 
in North Carolina prospered. At the 
time of his death there were about sixty 
or seventy members. It is still growing, 
and is now under the care of Elders J. F. 
Robertson and C. R. Faw. 

As the church increased rapidly, the 
labors became too great for Bro. Bow- 
man, whereupon Abram Naff and Abram 
Barnhart were called to the ministry and 
soon to the eldership. They were co- 
laborers with Bro. Bowman. Eld. Naff 
attended a great many funerals also, and 
often accompanied Eld. Bowman on his 
long preaching tours. Christian Bow- 
man, born in this county, and a brother 
to Eld. Bowman, moved to Roanoke 
County, and was called to the ministry 
there. He afterwards moved to Floyd 
County, where he settled. Most of his 
labors were in Floyd and surrounding 
counties. 

The church in Franklin grew until the 
communions could no longer be con- 
veniently held in barns and in meadows, 
hence the necessity of building a house 
of worship. This was done in 1848, the 
house being 40x100 feet. Through the 
preaching of the Franklin brethren a 
church was organized in Campbell 
*vounty, with W. I. Hall, a resident 



elder. At present there are four con- 
gregations in this county, with about 
seven hundred members. There are 
twenty-five ministers, and eleven of 
them are elders. 

A great many members have emi- 
grated from this county to nearly all 
parts of the western States. In the year' 
1870 it was decided to divide Franklin 
congregation into three, and two houses 
of worship were built in 1873, viz., An- 
tioch and Bethlehem. Two years ago a 
congregation was organized at Snow 
Creek, with about twenty-five members. 

The churches in Franklin are united 
in faith and spirit. We have our co- 
operation meetings and work together in 
supplying our mission points in Henry 
and Pittsylvania Counties. 

The elders of the congregations are: 
Germantown, Abram Barnhart, Henry 
Ikenberry and R. L. Peters; Bethlehem, 
Daniel Bowman, Daniel Peters, D. A. 
Naff and George Bowman; Antioch, Rily 
Flora, Isaac Bowman, L. E. Brubaker 
and S. M. Ikenberry. 

I have composed this short history by 
the assistance of our young brother, 
Enoch Bowman, as penman, as I am 
blind.

THE ANNUAL MEETING FOR 1909. 



The Annual Conference for the Church 
of the Brethren for 1909 is to be held at 
Assembly Park, one and one-half miles 
north of Harrisonburg, Va., on the 
Southern Railroad. The park contains 
about twenty acres, all facing toward 
the sun, and all of it is a most lovely 
white oak grove, owned and controlled 
by an association of the United Brethren 
church and is used for large religious 
gatherings. A number of permanent 
buildings are on the ground, all of which 
will be turned over to the Conference. 
To accommodate the meeting consider- 
able more building will have to be done. 

The water supply will be abundant 
and is known to be absolutely pure. It 



is carried through a large pipe by grav- 
itation from a large spring in the North 
Mountains. Harrisonburg, it is said, 
leads all the towns of the Shenandoah 
Valley in the quality of her water supply. 

Three railroads touch Harrisonburg, 
and all trains over the several roads, 
carrying passengers to the meeting, will 
stop right at the grounds. The pas- 
sengers can step off the cars and pass 
right into the park. The Southern Rail- 
road, on whose line the park is located, 
agrees to haul the people back and forth 
from the grounds to the city, agreeing 
to run trains every few minutes with 
twelve or fifteen coaches, if necessary. 

Harrisonburg, the county seat of 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC 







Rockingham County, the first agricul- 
tural county in the old Commonwealth, 
is a beautiful, enterprising city of about 
5,000 people, whose hospitality, in a gen- 
eral way, is well known, and whose 
friendship towards our people is almost 
without parallel. They are ready, even 
eager, to undertake the lodging and 
caring for all that may attend the Con- 
ference, their number notwithstanding. 
When they were told the probable num- 
ber that would attend, they remained 
undaunted. 

The Conference convenes on Tuesday 
morning, June L The Standing Com- 
mittee will meet and organize on Thurs- 
May 2T, at 8 A. M. Each district is en-

titled to one elder on this committee. 
Districts having 3,500 or more members 
are entitled to two elders. In the open 
conference each congregation, however 
small, may be represented by one del- 
egate, either from the laity or the official 
body. Congregations having two hun- 
dred members have the privilege of send- 
ing two delegates. Sisters may serve as 
delegates from the churches, but they 
cannot serve on the Standing Committee. 
Only regularly-ordained elders, or bish- 
ops, can serve on this committee. Where 
there is opposition, it requires a two- 
thirds vote of the delegates and Stand- 
ing Committee to carry a question in 
the open conference. 

As early as May 27 meetings on the 
Conference grounds will probably be 
held. The program for these meetings 
will, in due time, be announced in the 
Gospel Messenger and the Conference 
"Booklet for 1909." The Committee of 
Arrangements for the meeting is as fol- 
lows: Foreman, H. C: Eiarly, Penn 
Laird; secretary, P. S. Thomas, Harris- 
onburg; treasurer, John Hoover, Tim- 
berville; D. H. Zigler, Broadway; W. H. 
Sipe, Bridgewater; J. M. Kagey, Day- 
ton; Daniel Early, Harrisonburg, all 
of Virginia. ^ 

MONKEY AND PARROT IN 
BRAZIL. 

In Brazil monkeys and parrots have 
interests in common. They not only 
roost in the same trees, but work for 
mutual benefit. The monkeys cannot 
easily pick the big Brazil nut husks from 
the trees, so the parrots gnaw them 
loose, allowing them to drop, the fall 
to the ground splitting them. Then the 
monkeys tear the cracked husks asun- 
der, gather the nuts and divide them 
with the parrots. Sometimes, when the 
husks fail to split, the monkeys carry 
them up to the highest limbs of the tree 
and let them drop again. Monkey and 
parrot enjoy their harvest side by side.

MINISXBRIAL LISX. 



Corrected up to and Including November 8, 1908. 



For the convenience of the Gish Fund Department we have found it necessary to arrange the Ministe- 
rial List alphabetically instead of under States. 

Kept in our large fireproof vaults is a systematically-arranged file, containing a card, 4x6 inches, for 
each minister in the Brotherhood. On each minister's card are his name and address. If he changes his 
address, the change is noted on his card. If he orders a book, as provided for by the Gish Fund, that is 
entered. When a minister dies, or is relieved of his office, his card is removed from the file. If a brothei 
is elected to the ministry a new card, containing his name and address, is placed in the file. 

The following list is set up from these cards. Should any mistakes be discovered, write us so we can 
correct the card list. The corrections made will appear in the Almanac list for 1910.

Floral Wall Mottoes 



The lettering is clear and distinct and can be read across the room. 

The size, 12 x 16, makes them suitable for use in any home. Unlike 
many pictures or mottoes they do not fade, and lose their bright and at- 
tractive colors. They can readily be dusted should they become a trifle 
soiled, or can be cleaned whenever desired with a damp cloth. 

Ten Mottoes and Ten Designs 
1. Be Ye Followers of God as Dear 8. Love One Another. 



9. The Lord Is my Shepherd. 

The motto for these texts has a de- 
lightful arrangement of for-get-me-nots 
and crimson roses on a black back- 
ground. Very artistic. 

10. What Is Home Without a Mother? 
This has long been a favorite motto 

and is still in great demand. The beauti- 
ful scroll design, artistic lettering ai|d 
delicate flowers make this an attractive 
motto and a good seller. 



Children. 

A very attractive design with groups 
of children. The poem "Jesus Was a 
Little Child" neatly printed in one 
corner adds much to make this picture 
a very desirable one for the children. 

2. Be not Weary in Well Doing. 
This design is composed of a beauti- 
ful scroll, two birds and their nest, and 
beautiful flowers, all in colors. 

3. Christ Is the Head of this House. 
The flower on this motto is a large 

beautiful orchid, which gracefully over- 
hangs the lettering. 

4. God Bless Our Home. 

5. In God We Trust. 
The design used with these texts is 

pansies in natural coloring. The letter- 
ing is artistically shaded and beautiful- 
ly harmonizes with the flowers. 
6'. God Is Our Refuge and Strength. 
7. Home, Sweet Home. 

This beautiful design is sure to be a 
good seller. No. 6 represents God as 
a refuge for the soul, and should be in 
every Christian home. No. 7 is one of 
the most popular mottoes known to the 
English speaking world. It is always 
in demand. Can be sold anywhere to 
anybody. 

Price, each, $0.15 

Per set of 10, 1.00
